Sarah Silverman didn't waste any time bashing Britney Spears after the performance. US Weekly had to say this:
Immediately following Spears’ glittery opening performance, Silverman poked fun at the singer’s early rise to fame. “Was that incredible?" she asked the crowd. "She is amazing. I mean, she is 25 years old and she’s already accomplished everything she’s going to accomplish in her life.”
She continued: “It’s weird to think that just a few years ago on this very show, she was this, like, sweet innocent little girl in slutty clothes writhing around with a python. That’s not nice…calling Madonna a python.”
Even Spears’ sons, Jayden and Sean, who turn 1 and 2 next week, respectively, were fare game.
“Have you seen Britney’s kids? Oh my god, they are the most adorable mistakes you will ever see!” Silverman trilled. “They are as cute as the hairless vagina they came out of.”
I'm not sure that was totally classy...I think sometimes Sarah Silverman is really rude. Personally, I don't like her much. I don't think it was fair to bash Britney Spears' kids....they didn't chose who their mom was!
You know I don't have enough words to express what I think of the performance. But someone at YouTube comments summed it up really nicely...
the price of Britney's weave $200
the price of Britney's out fit $100
the price of screwing up your only chance at a comeback PRICELESS!!!!
I can't get over the look on the other's faces...they were all wondering what the heck was going on. And then the VMA's cancelled the act with Criss Angel she was going to do. Poor girl!
